    I was wondering when you would start this and knew it was right up your street with all the medals. Great addition too.

    Great work on the 'necklace', have to say the first medal on the bar has a very Germanic look to it.

    So did the Prince himself.

    Years ago, I got to visit Baden-Wuerttemberg as part of a Rotary exchange, and among the members of one of the chapters was Friedrich Karl, Hereditary Prince of Hohenlohe-Waldenburg. When I first met him, I was struck by a resemblance; they could have been brothers or at least, close cousins. I wasn't too surprised, thought. I figured there was probably a good deal of shared blood between the Battenbergs and the Hohenlohes, even if it went back a long way.

    Apologies for the name-dropping, too. But Friedrich Karl was a real...prince, as we would say. He collected toy soldiers, too, and he was kind enough to give me a copy of a booklet he had written on the Hohenlohe military, from the 1500s to the Napoleonic Wars.

    Prost!
